Vegan Gluten Free Mac N Cheese

This is a  delicious, fuss-free, quick recipe that I found from The results were soo good, even my non-vegan sister swore that she’s ready to replace her good-old mac n cheese with my vegan one.


Here’s the awesome recipe:

Vegan Gluten Free Mac N Cheese

  • ½ cup raw cashews
  • 1 Tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 tsp roasted smashed garlic
  • 1 tsp raw finely chopped garlic (**optional – see note in post)

Topping ingredients:

  1. Bring a large pot of water to the boil and cook the pasta for about 5 minutes until al dente.
  2. While the pasta is cooking throw all of the sauce ingredients into your Vitamix and puree until smooth and creamy.
  3. **If you have a Vitamix, you can just blend until the sauce is piping hot in just a few minutes.
  4. While the sauce is blending, saute the sliced mushrooms in a tiny bit of olive oil and 1 Tbsp wheat free tamari until nice and tender.
  5. Drain the pasta.
  6. Place the pasta back into the post, pour the sauce over, and toss with the mushrooms, parsley and spring onions until well combined.
